SHENANDOAH — The Nodaway Valley boys claimed the small-school division crown at Tuesday’s Mustang Golf Invitational here, while the Corning boys finished sixth in the division.

“We battled the elements, but came out on top in the small school division,” Nodaway Valley head coach Steve Shantz said. “Delson Grantham is back in form after a rough start to the year and led NV, carding a 39-41-80 good for 11th place. Our three freshmen competed in their first 18-hole tournament and we counted two of the three. Wes Davis was outstanding and met his goal of mid-80s.”

Lance Swartz led Corning with a 19th-place finish with a round of 87.
